Ubisoft announced today that Assassin's Creed 3 is well on its way to becoming the publisher's most pre-ordered game ever. Already, the recently announced title has as many pre-orders as Assassin's Creed Brotherhood had total, and ten times the number that Assassin's Creed Revelations had during the same pre-release time frame for that game. It's expected that by June AC 3 will have surpassed Revelations' total pre-orders entirely.

Apparently people really want that steelbook case (pictured above). Or maybe they're excited about laying waste to the redcoats and revolutionaries in 18th century America. Your guess is as good as ours.

Have you pre-ordered AC 3 yet, or are you waiting to find out what retailer will have the best exclusive bonuses, if any? Let us know in the comments or on Twitter.
